Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Awards Team Members Across the Destination

Friday, March 24, 2023, was a day of celebrations as Hershey Entertainment & Resorts (HE&R)  2022 Partners of the Year were announced at Town Hall meetings across several properties. 

Throughout the 2022 calendar year, team members were nominated by their peers or supervisors for “Team Member of the Month” recognition and exemplify HE&R's Core Values: Devoted to the Legacy, Selfless Spirit of Service, Team-Focused and Respectful of Others. Then, at the beginning of the following year, leaders at each property choose the team member who earns the distinction of being named “Partner of the Year.” The winning team members receive a monetary gift and more! 

Congratulations to all nominees from Hershey Country Club, Hershey Lodge, Hersheypark Entertainment Complex and The Hotel Hershey. Please join us in celebrating the 2022 Partners of the Year!
